Dear Based on your profile I am happy to request for your assistance and also to go into business partnership with you, I believe that you will not Betrayed my trust which I am going to lay on you. I am Obageli Okanga, 24years old and the only daughter of my late parents Mr. and Mrs Okanga. My father was a highly reputable business magnet- (a cocoa merchant) who operated in the capital of Ivory Coast during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away my steriously in one of his business trips in abroad in year 12th.Febuary 2004.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time. But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 7 years old, and Since then my father took me so special. Before his death on February 12th 2004 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told Him that he has the sum of Twelve Million five hundreds thousand United State Dollars.(USD$12 500 000) left in a security company in a metallic Trunk box, but the security company didn't know the contents because it was Registered as family valuables items for security reasons. I am just 24 years old and a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. Sir, I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. Please if you have any question to ask me about this Transaction do not delay to contact me on my above email address. I await your urgent response as soon as possible.
